We’ve had some pretty cold days this week. I’m glad today is going to be a beautiful 60 degree day. I had to head in to my office on Tuesday and as much as I wanted to “work-wear” my Lolli pants I knew I would be cold so I decided to layer with my new cashmere tee.
Shirt: J Crew Factory Store Two-Pocket Chambray Shirt (32043)
Sweater: J Crew Cashmere Tee in Henna
Jeans: J Crew Ankle Stretch Toothpick
Boots: Pebbled and Primped
Necklace: J Crew Knotted Twist Necklace
I stayed in and warm on Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday I was ready to put on real clothes and decided on a repeat of Tuesday.
Shirt: JC FS Chambray Shirt (again)
Sweater: JC Cashmere Tee in Bronzed Olive
Jeans: JC Ankle Stretch Toothpick
Boots: Steve Madden Inragee
We had a teeny bit of snow on Friday. It stuck to the cement and hard surfaces but not the grass.
Bella’s not too sure she really needs to go potty.
And finally – I want to wish a wonderful Happy Birthday to my son David (aka The Boy). He’s 15 today and I’m so happy and proud to have raised a wonderful young man. He is my life.
I’m off to cook for the birthday festivities. I still owe you Anthro pics and JC Factory Store pics too. I hope to have them up or ready to post tomorrow evening.
Have a great day!
I’ve been trying to figure out a new title for post for my OOTD’s other than “Quick Post” or “Today’s OOTD”. Please forgive my Spanish as I am not fluent. I certainly understand a lot more than I can speak and am try to re-learn it so I can help The Boy with his classes in the next few years. “Que Bella”, I have found, translates to “How beautiful”. I really wanted to have the word “bella” in it if I could so that’s what I’ve come up with. We’ll see how it goes.
Here’s what I wore Thursday and Friday. Thursday was quite a beautiful day. Gorgeous blue sky and sun everywhere. This is the Fluttering Obi Dress by Corey Lynn Calter from Anthropologie, size 4. When I tried on the dress the belt was stitched in the back so I had to take a seam ripper to it so that I could wear the belt the way it shows in the picture on the Anthro size. The only thing I don’t like about this dress is the sleeve. It is elastic and so if I push them up they are tight on my arm. I really loathe elastic on the arms but sometimes you have to suffer for fashion, right? The print is too pretty and did I mention it’s a size 4! I love when I can fit into my 20’s size! These are worn with my Steve Madden Inragee boots.
Friday was an equally gorgeous day – very Spring-like – and 75 degrees with a slight breeze. For me that meant a cardigan and for Husband that meant shorts and a t-shirt. I’m wearing J Crew Cashmere Cardigan in Cobblestone, J Crew Silk and Sequin Scoopneck Tee in Dark Plum (see the Almond color on Gigi here), GAP Essential Jeans and Prada Leopard flats. I had a salon appointment yesterday and, because I’m trying to grow out my hair, it’s not as short as I would probably like. But I’ll get there. Not sure where “there” is but I’ll figure it out soon enough.
So, can you tell where I’ve taken this picture? No? Well, I’m in a dressing room…at the J Crew Factory Store. I was able to swing by after my salon appointment and tried on a few things. I really wanted to see the Neapolitan skirt and shorts IRL and they did not disappoint. I’ll post pics later this weekend.
Have a great day!
Husband received a gift card and a shirt he didn’t like for Christmas so we went to the mall so he could find something he did like. He’s not a shopper so I decided to make sure I gave him my undivided attention. I only wandered off once. Not bad right? He actually found quite a bit of clothes for work.
Here’s what I wore. It was pretty cold today so layers were appropriate.
Blazer: J Crew Ecole
Sweater: J Crew Cashmere V-Neck
Tee: J Crew Perfect Fit
Skirt: J Crew Donegal Tweed Atlee
Leggings worn as tights: J Crew
Boots: Steve Madden
Have a great evening!
It’s been awhile. I’m still here but I just couldn’t do the remix any longer for a few reasons. I have to say it is an amazing challenge but I should have been a bit more thoughtful in my selections. Also, the weather changed significantly on Thanksgiving Day. And, I am just not much of an accessorizer, which is a major part of this challenge. I have lots of them – scarves, rings, necklaces, but I rarely wear them. Maybe if shoes were not included but used as an accessory I could have stuck with it.
BUT…to you other remixers out there – keep it going. I love seeing your outfits!
Here are days 12, 13 & 14 as promised last week.
And here’s today’s outfit. I thought I’d pick a different setting for my pics today so I grabbed the tri-pod and went out to my front yard.
Boots: Steve Madden
And I had an audience. All does, no bucks.
Have a great day everyone. I am enjoying our cooler temps and happy to finally be able to wear my sweaters, tights and boots!
More like Burnt Orange!
Hey look…it’s Bella.
The front is sweeping through Central/South Texas and we’ve already hit our high temp for the day – 39. Brrr-rabbit…So layering is required. I’ve got work then the boy’s basketball game and then sitting down to watch the Texas Longhorns take on some football team from Alabama (tee hee). Can’t wait for the game and we’ll have some delicious turkey chili to warm us up while watching.
